Machu Pichu is on most people’s itineraries when they visit Peru, and for good reason. It’s hidden lost city built in the middle of the jungle abandoned for reasons we can only speculate, brimming with genius architectural designs that one cannot comprehend at times. Suffice to say it left me breathless, and though Peru is bursting full of wondrous and diverse places to explore, this one cannot be missed. Of course, there are several ways to experience it based on your level of fitness, preferred level of comfort, size of your wallet and love of the outdoors. It’s good to have an idea of which way is right for you before you go, or you’ll risk being flummoxed and under pressure to book when you get there. Stay cool, pick 2-3 reputable agencies to visit and haggle with and keep in mind what you really want to get out of the experience.
